Sunday, September 5th Joys:
Ron Dry for Ron Hartman – After 12 hours of surgery Jonathan is doing well and his new liver is working.  He still has a long road ahead so we still need prayers.

Kathy Odell – David had shoulder surgery on Friday and is doing well.
Robin Hinson – On Tuesday a few of us met and fed 13 people at the Community Inn and on Thursday we worked at Soul Food and made 69 plates that we passed out to folks in the community.
